DescriptionChina Camp is a great Mtn Bike location featuring minor climbing but lots of flow. It's small, so I usually do loops of the circumference of the Park. Going counter clockwise from the campground entrance, its' about a two mile gentle climb to the top, followed by a 5 mile gradual descent that can bring you back to the start. The lines of sight are very good and the grade is low enough that you only have to brake on 90 and 180 degree turns. There are only two or three spots where the ground is not smooth, and most of it is really groomed.

  • Great spot easy to reach for some fun mountain biking. Speedster/daredevils are out early, family time is best midday on weekends. ( by Tracy on 2015-10-18 )
